today show that harry reid could be voted out of office next year. he is now trailing two republican challengers in his home state of nevada. this conjures up memories of tom daschle, ousted in 2004. shannon has been looking closely through the polls. how concerned should harry reid be? >> he is in danger of repeating history. in 2004, tom daschle was voted out, a top senate democrat at the time. voters decided to go with a conservative, very different than tom daschle. that was the first time in 50 years that the top democrats have lost his reelection. so now we're looking at harry reid, the majority leader, and he is going to meet the same fate, something he does not want, and something the democrats do not want in 2010, either. when you look at the potential head-to-head matchups, first against the son of a famous nfl coach, reid goes down 11% against danny tarkanian. he is down to sue loud and by 5%. both of them could beat him convincingly if there were voting today. jane: what kind of hurdles does he have to overcome? >> things are tough and nevada. there is double digit unempl

"washington journal" looked at that issue this morning. guest now is jim martin, the founder of the 60 plus association here to talk to us about older americans that health care. when is your group's position on the bills that are out there right now? guest: the proposals that have been put forth, we say first, do no harm. let's not take a wrecking ball to a system that works very well for seniors. we say, do not throw the baby out with the b
are saying, stop. >> gregg: scott, in the beginning people like harry reid and nancy pelosi and surrogates of the president, were saying all these protestors and townhalls are not genuine, it's a setup. they are evil and unamerican. you have a pole of what americans think of these protestors? >> 49% believe they represent the views of their neighbors. 37% don't. by the way, not surprisingly is partisan view and harry reid were one of views the democrats felt and republicans had a different perspective of the situation. again, it's important to remember this is more than just about health care. it's part of the frustration. there is also a gap, 49% of people representing opinions of their neighbors. so people are squeamish about the behavior itself. >> julie: we used one of your polls and posed the question to the twitter followers who do you fear more. i found that one person wrote, i trusted government more, you can vote them out every four years but you cannot do the same with insurance ceos. and insurance companies, definitely and if we had more competition to private insurance companie
these people on american and other people suggesting that they are behaving like nazi's. you have harry reid: them evil mongerers. >> i said that it organized, but in america, you have the right to organize. you just have to evaluate what the feelings of the american people are in light of the organization. there are more than people from that town or that county. i certainly will not criticize them. i will listen to them they are citizens. they have a right to be heard. when that man was apoplectic and told me that god would stand before me, as he said it, you showed a clip. i said wait a minute, i did not want that man to be ejected. i did not want the story to be that a citizen was ousted from the town hall meeting. i wanted the impact to be that i was prepared to listen and stay cool. megyn: i was so impressed they had read the bill. they were very informed. >> they certainly were. i give them credit for that. it is even more reason why they are entitled to be listened to and have their voices heard. megyn: we are watching you and your poll numbers. so far, not looking that great in the
wearing swastikas. harry reid and then called them on american. -- harry reid then called them un-american. bill: chairman of the republican senate group joins us this morning, your reaction? >> petrilli disappointing and very sad. in fact -- >> it really disappointing and very sad. in fact, democrats in the house were told not to talk on this issue. we were not allowed to send information to our constituents. if anyone is drowning out opposing views, it is the democratic leadership. the real issue is what is in the bill. it is not what the american people want. that is why they are voicing their american concerns. there is nothing on american about voicing -- uun-american for -- there is nothing un- american about voicing concerns. bill: it goes on further. "health care is complex and touches every american. people must be allowed to learn the facts. do you think that the people know what is in that bill? >> i do not believe so. but if the american people had not been speaking out loudly to slow this process down, the bill would have already passed the house. the speaker said tha
. but we are not going to stand with -- anymore. the families can -- >> nancy pelosi, harry reid and the rest of the people in congress in the senate, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they're asking us to be on? >> nobody's talking about setting up -- putting 47 million people in a public plan. we don't know if that's going to be part of the plan. what we're talking about -- what we're talking about is giving penl who don't have health insurance options. >> this is a direct assault on our personal liberties, our personal freedom, our personal privacy. you need to open it up to the free markets. you need to government the hell out of our lives. >> okay. so what is all of the fuss about? does anything really get accomplished? can you get your point across when you're disrupting a meeting like this? does it make sense? is it real? is it fake? tomorrow night we'll go in depth on the health care town hall meetings. you want to stay tuned right here on cnn. tomorrow night we'll report on that. >>> tragedy over the hudson river. bodies are still missing after a deadly

on the economy, current events and politics. monday night, kris anderson and senate majority leader harry reid. three days of peace, love and music, 40 years ago this weekend, half a million people gathered for woodstock. co-founder michael lang takes us behind the scenes tonight at 9:00 eastern on both tv. >> in your new book from the new deal to the new right, you argue that modern conservatism was found in the south, why? >> the reason i make that claim is often people talk about southern strategy, the capture of the south by the gop after the 1960s beginning with barry goldwater, nixon's 72 election but in some ways, the situation is the reverse, southerners played a key role in development in the conservative capture of the republican party itself, and also republican ascendance national league. in certain ways, a combination of southern segregationist politics and northern economic conservatism were blended over time by various political actors in a way that allowed the national language of racial resentment and opposition to federal and state power in the democratic party in general. >>
families, to our seniors, to the well, of our community. it nancy pelosi, harry reid and the rest of the people in congress, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they're asking us to be on? >> nobody's talking about setting up putting 47 million people in a public plan. we know that's going to be part of the bill. what we're talking about is giving people who don't have health insurance options. >> it's 00 direct assault on our personal leberities, our personal freedom, our personal privacy. you need to open it up to the free market. you need to get the government the hell out of our way. >> and a reporter became the story at a town hall meeting in missouri. take a look at this. >> i don't know why i can't sit here. >> because i'm telling you to leave. game's over. let's go. one more time i'm going to tell you you're leaving or you're going to jail with me this evening. which one would you like? >> that was st. louis reporter jake wagman, he was arrested thursday night while covering protests at a town hall congres townhall meeting at a local school. wagman says he
language here. on the liberal side, nancy pelosi calling protesters un-american. harry reid calling opponents of health care evil mongers. nadler saying fascist. pelosi calling insurance companies "the real villains." the conservative side, sarah palin saying obama's death panel down right evil. chuck grassley saying every right to fear death panels. a congressman from georgia saying this is a steam roller of socialism. john boehner last month saying government-encouraged euthenasia included in the health care plan. we heard that echoed from newt gingrich as well. >>> pat buchanan, the splilness in this debate just escalating, now you have nadler talking about fascism. >> let me tell you, i just did a column and i have polls out. this is insanity on liberal democrats. 64% of moderates say the protesters are behaving appropriately and 40% of democrats say that. and by almost two to one, people who know about the protesters identify with them, not against them. joe, there's a story today about a congressman in the neighboring district, congressman boyd. he held three town hall meeting
to say that i am unpatriotic or yesterday harry reid said i'm an evil monger. that is so offensive at so many levels, i can't tell you. i am the average citizen. that's why i want to thank you y'all for letting me come on the program this morning. i think in that regard i sort of represent the average guy. he doesn't get a voice in this game. with all these people showing up. we sort of do have a dog in the fight right now. and i'm glad i'm part of that. >> mark, who asked a great question of a u.s. senator yesterday. it was great that you could visit us on this friday. alisyn: thanks, mark. >> thank you very much. alisyn: we can all probably agree that health care in america has some problems. and may be in need of reform. why can't the president sell that message to the masses? the five key things that americans are not buying about reform next. steve: we showed you this video steven tyler from aerosmith falls right off the stage. there he goes. i believe that's at sturgeon sturedges. will the front man have to take a backseat on the tour? brian: he got really hurt. bvr since arthur's
of control spending, spiraling debt and liberalism. a spokesman for senate majority leader harry reid said the group is distorting the truth and engaging in sleazy campaign tactics. >>> time for our i-report of the day. roger savitz shot this video in maine and said these turkeys are hanging out in the road causing a traffic jam. looking cute, though. you give us your views and turkeys. head to cnn.com/robin to learn how you can become an i-reporter. thanks for that. that was cute. >>> if you're annoyed by those pre-recorded robo calls trying to sell you something, some help is on the way for you. many of those calls are being banned by the government. our money expert jennifer westhoven is here and jen, not all robo calls are being banned, though, right? >> yes, but what's that at dinner? what's that? could it be the sound of silence? >> thank goodness. >> a lot less fewer calls. robo calls from companies will not be allowed starting tomorrow. you can still legally get them from charities, politicians and debt collectors, they got exemptions but the ftc says telemarketers must get written
harry reid is confident they will pass the bill. reject all the amendments. so far the senators have said no to four. three more to go. shepard? shepard: wendell goler live at the white house. thanks. the housing crisis now and a dire prediction. almost half of all americans with mortgages, almost half will eventually owe more on their loans than their homes are worth. deutsche bank estimates now it will happen by the start of the year 2011. that's 25 million american homeowners under water on their loans. 48% of all families with mortgages, imagine that being under water. makes it a lot more difficult for borrowers onto modify or change their loans. and even though we have seen some positive reports on home sales in recent weeks. prices do continue to fall. we'll have more business news, including a look at the jobs market coming up in just a few minutes. police say he went on a shooting spree at a health club, then committed suicide. but now it turns out he left behind some messages. >> i wanted to continue immediately to start moving on this. i didn't realize i had that much time.
they understand how complex and how much it could misfire? >> i think they are and i think certainly harry reid is cognizant of that. i'd be interested in your view, though. what i think i learned covering you, and i wish i had e-mail then because you were hard to get on the phone, was that senators and particularly senators involved in financial stuff, can sort of figure these things out and make it work and delay things and phase in different provisions to try to work out whatever they want to dor. so i'm a little skeptical that they can't do it this way. you tell me, can they make it happen? >> no, i agree with conrad. what happens is what they will do is raise a budget point of order saying, this provision of the bill right here involving health insurance reform on pre-existing conditions, which is absolutely critical to health care reform legislation, is irrelevant to the federal budget in the following ways. then you need 60 votes to overrule that point. so it will take 60 votes within reconciliation to include most of the things that people want included in the bill. and that's basically
. harry reid preparing to do what progressives hollered for, cut the republicans loose and pass public health care. reid's staff says they are possibly going to use the reconciliation posture. we will not pursue reconciliation until we exhausted efforts to produce a bipartisan bill, however, patience is not unlimited. jon kyl said he does not think a single republican senator would vote for either the house bill or the one senate bill that made it out of committee so far. after michael steele dared democrats to go it alone, taunting that their reluctance to do so prove democrats know the american people rejected their vision of health care reform. >> don't come up in my face saying i'm an obstacle. you got the votes, mr. president, pass the bill. they could have done it. why didn't they? they know it's poisonous. they know the american people will not tolerate it. >> polls show american not even tolerating, but supporting the option. few americans supporting president obama on health care in general. 46% proving his handling of health care down 57% from april. let's turn to clarence pa
's happened is that the democratic leadership particularly harry reid and nancy pelosi, have started ridiculing these people and they're escalating and they've called out the unions and the unions are now trying tone force some order. it reminded me a little bit of when the rolling stones decided to hire hell's angels to tamp down the rowdy crowd at altamont. it's a bad idea, they're escalating, but everyone has an obligation to hear from every constituent, whether or not they agree with them and we need to create a process where everybody gets a chance at the microphone to calmly express their views. >> igor, there are some democrats trying to dismiss the angry crowds as a minority push by conservative groups, giving them directions to get to the front of the group, spread yourselves out, be loud and make your talking points and disrupt things. is that fair? >> alex, i think if there's one thing the clip you just played demonstrates is that the people at this town hall, groups like freedomworks, americans for prosperity, they're not interested in having a substantive debate. they're
we have a sense from the senate? >> harry reid, the majority leader, came out and talked to us at the white house after a big luncheon with 57 democratic senators and the president here and said absolutely by week's end this will pass. $2 billion taken from the economic stimulus bill from an energy loan program, embedded deep in the economic stimulus so it's money already allocated but it is definite spending. and it's also clear senate republicans will not engage in a filibuster. they'll offer some amendments. but by week's end that $2 billion will be approved. shepard: major garrett at the yard at the white house, thank you. also from the white house today, new developments on a major effort by the administration to crack down on distracted driving, an effort that could make it illegal all across the nation to use cell phones and blackberries or anything else at the wheel. catherine herridge is live in washington. there's going to be a summit next week on this? >> next month, in fact. transportation officials, the secretary, most interestly members of congress and academic wh
, harry reid last night, late, apparently reached a zeal. he's got enough votes. they have enough democrats to do anything they want to. but apparently did he reach a deal because some -- he did reach a deal because some republicans were threatening to not make this go through. some speedbumps along the way and perhaps they would have to start their vacation late. nonetheless, $2 billion more for the federal government to buy cars to do that to. peter: do we think that's the end? will there be another $2 billion? gretchen: that's the $2 billion question. peter: is it going to continue if it's successful in the terms of the goal of 750,000 cars being purchased? will there be another billion, another $2 billion, anothe another $3 billion? gretchen: a lot of economists wonder whether or not this is a good program. is it taking demand from buying cars in the next one, two, three years? after you hand out money, du, people are going to buy cars. if you hand out $4,500 to somebody, they're going do it. will they go back and ask $2 billion more? this takes them through labor day. apparen
to drive the car. not sit in the back seat while nancy pelosi and harry reid drove the car. they want barack obama to get behind the wheel and drive the car. >> that's the damnedest thing. i asked why this happened. he had his plan. nancy said no. he deferred on that, cap and trade, health care. why is he deferring on all these huge issues that are, again, defining his presidency. >> joe, i think the reason is -- the reason i think, joe, it's his character. it's not a bad character. there's a certain diffidence, if you will. the other anti-thesis of lbj hands on, getting into this amendment, that amendment. i think he naturally defers. i'm the commander. let them carry these things out. i think, joe, what has happened, in middle america people say give this guy a shot. this may represent really change, this may be something different of the conclusion is c c congeeling these are the same old tax and spend democrats as before. >> he's done too much campaigning at 10,000 feet. he needs to kind of get down and do the sort of get dirty. >> here is the metaphor, life and politics and being
majority leader harry reid. >> as the health-care conversation continues, c- span's healthcare hobbs is an important resource. go online and follow the latest tweets, video advertisements, and links. keep up with town hall meetings, house and senate debate and even up low your opinion about health care with a citizen video. lobbying, influence, and money. have to use the internet to provide transparency in government. tonight at 8:00 eastern time on c-span to. host: our guest now is jim martin, the founder of the 60 plus association here to talk to us about older americans that health care. when is your group's position on the bills that are out there right now? guest: the proposals that have been put forth, we say first, do no harm. let's not take a wrecking ball to a system that works very well for seniors. we say, do not throw the baby out with the bathwater. quite frankly, this bill is so large and so complicated and so misunderstood and misinterpreted, we have already seen improvements in the proposal, whether it is the public option, that the president has backed away from. we
of this program is quote in harry's court refering to senator majority leader harry reid will he bring the house majority in extending it for the vote and will the f word rise speaking of filibuster. but here's another question they are facing as well. where will the money come from and senator chuck schumer says they could get the money from the energy loan fund and senator feinstein says democratic leaders agreed take it out of tarp but many say the program could be considered beyond this $2 billion and she was once opposed to the bill but now touts it as a good plan because consumers are turning in their clunkers and getting cars that get on average 61 miles better on average so looking at it this way it remains to be seen how the republicans will vote on this. megyn: where does it stop? how much money should we put into cash for clunkers? in the meantime you mentioned the f word. what are republicans saying about this program? because we heard it across the board. they said we're going to filibuster and not let it get a vote then others saying over our dead bodies. where do the republicans s
senator patrick leahy. as well as our senate majority leader, harry reid for their outstanding work, for their outstanding work to complete this process before the august recess. i want to thank senator schumer both who are justice sotomayor's home state senators. i want to thank all the members of congress who've taken the time to join us here at the white house event. and i want to acknowledge all the advocates and groups who organized and mobilized and supported these efforts from the very beginning. your work was absolutely critical to our success and i appreciate all that you've done. so, pat yourselves on the back. congratulations. two members of congress that i just especially want to acknowled acknowledge, senator bob menendez who worked so hard on the senate side. and congresswoman vazquez who is our congressional senate caucus. and i think we all want to take a moment to recognize the woman who in so many ways truly made this day possible, justice sotomayor's mother. mrs. sotomayor is here with her husband, omar, and justice sotomayor's brother, juan, and other members of
right, rick. let's talk a little bit about cash for clunkers. harry reid after a lunch he had yesterday with the president of the united states who was trying to rally support for health care, harry reid came out and said, you know, we've got the votes, we've got 60 votes and we will probably add $2 billion more before the senators head out. a lot of people have been talking about whether or not this made good sense, gave up to $4,500 for these clunkers. now there is news -- i kind of mentioned this yesterday. caulking to one of my car -- talking to one of my car dealer friends. that four of the top five cars that people are buying are made by foreign automakers. gretchen: yeah. as i mentioned, friends are in the car business. look at this list. number one, ford focus, number two, toyota corp corolla, honda civic, toyota prius, toyota camry. so had this whole cash for clunkers -- sorry, i can't say it without laughing. has it benefited foreign automakers when the whole point many of these foreign manufactured cars are actually manufactured in the united states in many different states a
thing is, whether his polls are down or not, the word from harry reid is that we are going to have a bipartisan bill or partisan bill. either way we're going to get this done. can you imagine if the agendas through without republican support? >> hairy reid said he don't have a bipartisan bill will just have a partisan. >> a group of the american league of voters stand for individual liberty and government accountability that to say, no, that's partisan, it's extraordinary. take a look at this ad. here's the ad done. we should point out that there is an actual neurosurgeon in here and he's warning about how under the president's plan, we could wind up with rationing. take a look at the plan. >> how can obama's plan cover 50 million new patients without any new doctors? it can't. it will hurt our seniors and medicare as we know it. rationed coverage and care. limit live saving medicines and pose long delays on cancer treatment and other vital surgery. it's happening in england and canada. don't let it happen here. >> tell congress to protect american healthcare. paid for by the leagu
